About Me

I am a special education teacher who was naturally drawn to technology. I sought any computer program I could find to help my students learn at an accelerated level. With the advent of the iPad and a few beginning apps that aided children with the basics of English and math, I knew this would evolve into an exceptional teaching tool. Working with students individually, choosing apps tailored to their particular needs, I saw a new world opening up for kids with special needs. I received teacher of the year four times and received an award for most innovative teacher in 2011. I have been on local New York TV and radio stations sharing my experiences using the iPad with students with special needs. I writes blogs for Tech and Learning Magazine and work closely with BridgingApps.org as they expand the use of technology nationally. I have a master's degree in education and am iPad certified by the Texas Computer Education Association (TCEA). I have taught iPad certification webinars for TCEA to parents, teachers, and therapists. I also teach using the iPad to meet the Common Core Standards for IEP goals to school districts in the NY.
